  2. Your game server files should be completely downloaded by now

Step 2: Setting up an Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord Dedicated Server

cd C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Bannerlord\
start /wait /REALTIME bin\Win64_Shipping_Server\DedicatedCustomServer.Starter.exe start "" /MIN /NORMAL ".\DedicatedCustomServer.Starter.exe" -log /dedicatedcustomserverauthtoken /dedicatedcustomserverconfigfile config.txt /port 28777 _MODULES_*Native*Multiplayer*_MODULES_ exit"
